Planning any travel should be a fun and exciting experience. I sometimes enjoy reading about travel destinations so I can dream then plan. If you are not sure where to go for your next holiday, then check out a sample of some popular vacation destinations that have withstood the test of time.
New York City is a long time favorite because there is something for everyone. No matter if you travel for cuisine, city life, arts, culture or even nature you are sure to find something to make your vacation enjoyable.
The most famous places to visit are the landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Also check out the Rockefeller Center where you can tour the “city within a city.” Other fun things include Broadway show, Carnegie Hall, Harlem Spiritual’s Gospel & Jazz Tours, and Radio City Music Hall.
Looking for an exotic beach vacation? Then check out Cancun, Mexico where you can find family fun in an all-inclusive vacation package. Visit the capital of the Mayan empire, enjoy a day playing at the beach or go to an eco-archaeological park, where you can spend a day in paradise while enjoying nature.
Why all-inclusive? These vacation packages can save you time and money. Airfare, hotel, rental cars are offered in many packages. Others even include meals, entertainment and activities so you can plan your budget and stay within it. All this means more fun and less stress on your beach vacation destination.
Orlando, Florida is a great destination for families. Here you will find fun in the sun along with popular theme parks like Walt Disney World Resort. There is also Sea World, Universal and Legoland. Families can stay at famous Disney hotels that include exciting swimming parks, an animal park right outside of your hotel window or even a tropical Polynesian atmosphere complete with even luau. You can even camp here at the Disney World campground and enjoy a marshmallow roast and sing along. This is truly a one-stop fun vacation destination for the whole family.
San Francisco, California offers an entirely different vacation experience. This city offers theater, music, beach culture and an interesting city experience. Take a guided bike tour of the city for breathtaking views and unique architecture. Enjoy seafood at the fisherman’s wharf or take an historic tour of Alcatraz. You can also relive the hippy days of Haight-Ashbury, visit the iconic Golden Gate bridge or enjoy a trolly ride through the city.
Toronto, Canada makes our last stop. I wanted to include a place that not many people think of as a vacation destination. But Toronto is a beautiful and lively city with wineries, breweries, museums, gardens and festivals. Take the kids to the Science Centre or the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory. And see the exciting Canada’s Wonderland Amusement and Water Park. Here you will find 16 thrilling roller coasters, a 20 acre water park and even an interactive dinosaur park featuring 40 animatronic dinosaurs.
I hope these vacation destination ideas inspired you and maybe even helps you choose your next family getaway. Keep in mind that vacations are a great way for families to enjoy their time together and offer memories that last a life time.
